Upgraded 2 inch wide leaf springs for 60-63 cars

Hey guys

I was wondering if anyone makes upgraded 2" wide springs for the 60-63 Falcons and Rancheros.
(2.5" are easy to come by, but they won't fit the earlier cars)

General Spring in KC has a pretty reasonable what appears to be stock set:
https://www.generalspringkc.com/product_p/42-303.htm

Ideally I'd like to run reverse-eye and higher rate than stock (it's for my Lemons Ranchero).

I see the following sources, but they're really expensive:
Eckler's - $435
Eaton Detroit Spring - $520++ per pair

Obviously I could go with a full-custom from various suppliers, but I doubt those would come in cheaper than ~$500.

I've got a 2nd set of 2" springs are was thinking of making a mega-pack by combining some of those into my existing pack, but that'll probably raise the car, which is the opposite of what I want.

How about a local spring shop?You would be surprized how some of these shops can make up you a set of springs. Roger

I've heard good things about McVeigh Truck Springs; here's a set on their ebay store:
